India's Harmanpreet Kaur reprimanded for Level 1 offence
India Woman cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur has been reprimanded after pleading guilty to a Level 1 breach of the ICC Code of Conduct during the first day's play in the first Test against England Women in Wormsley on Tuesday.
Kaur was found to have breached Article 2.1.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to "Showing dissent at an umpire's decision during an International Match."
The charge was brought by on-field umpires Billy Taylor and David Millns.
The batter admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by ICC Match Referee David Jukes. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.
All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player's match fee.
